 Now, what about numbers that are smaller than one? The number 0.01 is the result of multiplying 0.1 x 0.1. Written in exponential terms, this is: Once again, consider the relationship between decimal and exponential versions of numbers that are smaller than one. Notice that again, the number of zeros in the decimal number, including the one to the left of the decimal point, determines the exponent (except it is always a negative value). Determine the exponential version of the following decimal number. 0.0000001 = 10 The number 1 written in exponential terms is 100.

 In some cases you may want to convert a number from scientific notation to decimal notation. If the exponent is positive, move the decimal point rightward the number of places indicated by the exponent. If the exponent is negative, move the decimal point leftward the number of places indicated by the exponent. In both cases it may be necessary to add zeros. Convert the following scientific notation to decimal notation. 7.33 x 10-4 = 0.000733. This is the result of moving the decimal point four places. Try another example: 5.48 x 107=
